Grand-Raisin Cluster

Conceived to promote the science and art of land restoration, the Grand-Raisin Cluster (GRC) was formed in late 2002. Each year since, we have offered public workshops on subjects of interest to those who would explore and interact with native habitats. The GRC has two main areas of focus: 1) on the ground conservation action and planning, and 2) educating community members in conservation issues, techniques and other relevant topics. The GRC provides unique educational opportunities through events, workshops, activities and online networking to share ideas, information, skills and resources to enable local groups to increase their capacity to care for local land and water.

The Grand-Raisin Cluster covers Jackson, Hillsdale, and Lenawee Counties.
